While One Frame Link is a supporter of the Fighting Game Community at-large, we’ve never lost touch with what makes this community great – the individual connections that we form because of our shared love for fighting games.
Even though we live in an era where where online battles have become the norm, it’s those connections that we make in-person that help define us as a community. And what better way to make those connections than at a tournament?
To that end sf4answers has sponsored East Coast Throwdown for the past two years. With our transformation from sf4answers into One Frame Link we are privileged to continue supporting John and Joe by sponsoring East Coast Throwdown 4.
The foundation of our support comes from the great relationship I have with SweetJohnnyCage and L.I. Joe. How this relationship formed is a long story (OK, not that long, it involves a bunch of tweets and Evo 2009), but needless to say, we all share the same vision of elevating the community to new heights. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with them on a professional and personal level, supporting their initiatives and vice versa. We’re all trying to make the fighting game community a better place.
It’s in the spirit of realizing that vision that we here at One Frame Link are proud to announce that we are contributing a $3,000 pot bonus to the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament at East Coast Throwdown 4!
This was a difficult decision for One Frame Link because there are so many tournaments to choose from at ECT4; from the latest titles like Street Fighter X Tekken, Skullgirls and Soul Calibur 5 to old-school classics such as Super Street Fighter II Turbo (oh, it’s a Tournament of Legends qualifier) and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, the fighting game community is represented very well here.
However, the Marvel series is without-a-doubt one of the fundamental pillars of the fighting game community. Starting with MvC2, it’s provided us with the most hype-inducing, memorable moments in the community. Here’s just a sampling of what went down in the 10+ year tournament history of MvC2:
MvC3 is just getting its legs as a tournament game, but it’s already shown hints of potential to bring out great moments:
And of course, who could deny Marvel’s impact on the vernacular of the community?
So come out, player and spectator alike, and be there to forge the next generation of moments in our community.
As if that wasn’t enough, just peep the trailer to get a glimpse of ECT’s past, as well as where it’s going:
I’ll see you there!
